PS5 STOCK UPDATE -
UPDATE 7th Jan - Christmas may be in the rearview mirror but demand for the PS5 has not lessened now that the festive season is over. If anything, with the introduction of a third national lockdown in the UK, demand for the console is at an all-time high.
Fresh stock of the console hasn’t been seen at TESCO (or any other retailer) for over a month now, but the internet is abuzz with whispers that retailers will be taking new PlayStation 5 orders as early as this week.
If you’re on the hunt for a PlayStation 5 make sure you’re following our Gfinity Deals UK account, which will have the latest stock information the minute we have it.
UPDATE 14th Dec - PS5 stock rumours are flying across the internet at a rapid pace. Unfortunately, most of them are proving to be very much false as retailers are yet to restock the console since the last drop on 4th December.
If you’re desperately on the hunt for Sony’s next-generation PlayStation system, make sure to follow our Gfinity Deal UK account for the latest stock information as we get it.
UPDATE 19th Nov - LAUNCH DAY IS HERE! If you are still trying to get hold of a PS5 from TESCO or any other retailer use the links below:
The TESCO site has been going up and down all morning - so try several different links to try and grab yourself the console!
The last time we checked, at 10am, the site barely loaded and displayed a message which read: "WE ARE TEMPORARILY OUT OF STOCK, PLEASE CHECK BACK SOON"
More to follow.
UPDATE 18th Nov - After a torturous week of watching US gamers enjoy the PS5, the UK is finally getting in on the action tomorrow as Sony's next-gen system launches on this side of the pond.
Of course, not everybody has been able to secure a pre-order as the demand for the PS5 has been absolutely overwhelming with every single retailer selling out of stock in mere minutes.
If you miss out at TESCO, fear not you'll have a second chance as Amazon will be offering fresh orders from 12pm, here is the link you'll need to be in with a chance of getting a PS5 from there.
Make sure to follow our Gfinity Deals twitter account as well for up to the minute stock updates on the PS5, and good luck!
Original Story - The Sony PlayStation showcase was packed with big reveals and exclusive new looks at some outstanding games coming to next-gen consoles.
But we shouldn't kid ourselves that the most important details revealed were both the price and release date for the new PS5 console.
It's a bit of a shame that those in the UK and Europe will have to wait an extra week to get their hands on the console compared to other parts of the world.
But, none of that is going to matter if you can't secure your PS5 early with a pre-order in the first place.
Whilst most people will naturally gravitate towards the usual sites to pick up a pre-order, such as GAME and Amazon, it's worth remembering that sometimes the best places to look are the more unconventional.
Like Supermarkets. No, really.
It sounds weird, but we all know the likes of Tesco, Sainsbury's, ASDA, and Morrisons all have large entertainment sections. You just don't really think about them, except when you're bored and wandering the aisle when you should be doing the weekly shop (Or is that just me?)
The point is, don't ignore these massive supermarkets to help secure your PS5 pre-order. Which brings us neatly onto the question at hand for one of the biggest stores in the UK.
Can you pre-order PS5 at Tesco?
Pre-orders for the Sony PS5 have already gone live on the Tesco website.
In fact, it looks as though the major supermarket retailer was one of the first stores in the UK to have the console on sale following the PS5 showcase.
Naturally though, stock sold out incredibly quickly. Just as it had with GAME, Smyths Toys, and a few other retailers on Wednesday evening. But not Argos, who are waiting until Friday before going live with their PS5 pre-orders.
Based on the pre-order page for Tesco - tescopreorders.com/uk/ps5 - it looks as though the supermarket are only selling the standard edition PS5 console.
So, Tesco doesn't appear to be selling the PS5 digital edition from the looks of things. If that's the console of choice you're after, it might be time to start thinking of trying to pre-order from somewhere else (when stock is available).
What is the PS5 price from Tesco?
For those curious, or perhaps determined to buy from Tesco at some point in the future, the supermarket is selling the PS5 standard edition for £449.99.
Though it's worth noting that Tesco also says"Retail Price Subject To Change Until Release Date".
